Superseded Standard

IEEE/ISO/IEC 15288-2015

ISO/IEC/IEEE International Standard - Systems and software engineering -- System life cycle processes

This International Standard establishes a common process framework for describing the life cycle of man-made systems. It defines a set of processes and associated terminology for the full life cycle, including conception, development, production, utilization, support and retirement. This standard also supports the definition, control, assessment, and improvement of these processes. These processes can be applied concurrently, iteratively, and recursively to a system and its elements throughout the life cycle of a system.

P12207

Systems and software engineering -- Software life cycle processes

This document establishes a common framework for software life cycle processes, with well defined terminology, that can be referenced by the software industry. It contains processes, activities, and tasks that are to be applied during the acquisition of a software system, product or service and during the supply, development, operation, maintenance and disposal of software products. This is accomplished through the involvement of stakeholders, with the ultimate goal of achieving customer satisfaction. Software includes the software portion of firmware. This document includes those aspects of system definition needed to provide the context for software systems and services. This document also provides processes that can be employed for defining, controlling, and improving software life cycle processes within an organization or a project.

P24748-1

ISO/IEC/IEEE Draft International Standard - Systems and software engineering - Life cycle management - Part 1: Guidelines for life cycle management

This document provides guidelines for the life cycle management of systems and software, complementing the processes described in ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288 and ISO/IEC/IEEE 12207. This document: - addresses systems concepts and life cycle concepts, models, stages, processes, process application, key points of view, adaptation and use in various domains and by various disciplines; - establishes a common framework for describing life cycles, including their individual stages, for the management of projects to provide, or acquire either products or services; - defines the concept and terminology of a life cycle; - supports the use of the life cycle processes within an organization or a project. Organizations and projects can use these life cycle concepts when acquiring and supplying either products or services; - provides guidance on adapting a life cycle model and the content associated with a life cycle or a part of a life cycle; - describes the relationship between life cycles and their use in applying the processes in ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288 (systems aspects) and ISO/IEC/IEEE 12207 (software aspects); - shows the relationships of life cycle concepts to the hardware, human, services, process, procedure, facility and naturally occurring entity aspects of projects; and - describes how its concepts relate to detailed process standards, for example, in the areas of measurement, project management and risk management.

ISO/IEC/IEEE Draft International Standard - Systems and software engineering -Life cycle management - Part 2: Guidelines for the application of ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288 (System life cycle processes)

ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288 establishes a common framework for system life cycle processes, with well-defined terminology, that can be referenced by any party, particularly those having any involvement or interest in the system life cycle or performance of systems engineering activities. It applies to the acquisition of systems, which can be comprised of products, services, or both, as well as to the supply, development, operation, maintenance, and disposal of systems, whether performed internally or externally to an organization. ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288 may be used stand-alone or jointly with other International Standards, such as ISO/IEC/IEEE 12207, and supplies a process reference model that supports process capability assessment according to ISO/IEC 33002.

Systems and Software Engineering -- Life Cycle Management -- Part 4: Systems Engineering Management Planning

This part of ISO/IEC/IEEE 24748 n- specifies the processes from ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288 that implement systems engineering management for the life cycles of technical solutions, n- describes a required information item, termed the Systems Engineering Management Plan (SEMP) for the technical management and execution of the systems engineering of technical solutions, n- provides requirements and guidance for the content of the required information item.

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.


No Active Standards

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.


No Superseded Standards

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.


No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.
